What would Steve Jobs think about today's Apple?

“Easy may be harder than complex: you need to work tirelessly getting your reasoning clean to really make it easy. But it is worth every penny in the end because once you get there, you are able to move hills.” — Steve Work

if the iPhone ended up being unveiled a decade ago the operating-system (after that called iPhone OS, the iOS title did not appear until 2010) was sleek and easy. Every little thing had been a few taps away and the interface was intuitive and simple to use.

Fast-forward a decade and things have changed significantly. While iOS 11 retains a number of the appear and feel regarding the very early iPhone OS, Apple has bolted on, shoehorned in, and otherwise added to the mobile operating system plenty the when elegant and streamlined system happens to be a kludgy and embarrassing mess.

Notice panels and popups litter the interface, getting usage of often-needed functions today require people to remember a number of different motions, and also the Settings application happens to be in pretty bad shape to rival the Windows Control Panel at its worst.
